Independent Living Reviews for Parkwood Retirement Community

May 11, 2021

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My Dad was a resident at Parkwood for 10 years. He loved living at Parkwood. Dad made friends, stayed active, his apartment was great and we all LOVED the food! The management team knew my Dad and we felt kept a special eye on him. I learned from speaking to other resident family members they felt their parents were getting special treatment too. What a great feeling to know that your parents are living “independently” yet the peace you get knowing there is an extra set of eyes watching out for them. Sadly, our Dad “outgrew” Parkwood and was unable to live independently and we decided he should move in with my sister. When it came time for my husband and I to find a new home for his mother (mom) we immediately contacted Parkwood! Luckily, Parkwood had a vacancy, and we were able to move Mom in! She has been a resident for almost three weeks, and she LOVES Parkwood like my Dad did. She has made friends, is active and LOVES the food! Here is to Parkwood! Cheers!

I visited this facility

We toured Parkwood Retirement Community. I did a virtual tour and then I did an in-person tour. It was a great tour. The staff was very informative and very helpful. The buildings themselves were older, just by the looks of them on the outside. Inside the apartments, they're way more spacious than many others that I have seen. They've got lots of space. Lots more than I thought they would have. Each apartment complex has a storage unit, not in their apartment, but outside of their apartment, so that's very nice. It's a pretty good location. There's not too much traffic and they're right near the hospital. They will provide breakfast and lunch. You can also take extra food back with you to your apartment if you want it for dinner. They also had transportation, if needed, for doctors' appointments. They also go to Wal-Mart weekly and they alternate between Kroger, Walgreens, and Albertson's. They do fun activities where they take a group of residents to see Christmas lights etc. The only thing that was different for them is that the resident has to pay for their own electricity. The facility pays for the water, the sewer, the trash, the internet, and the TV. They offer activities in their common area. They have a beautiful garden on the interior area. There is an outside garden, but it's in the center of the complex. Each apartment has a washer and dryer connection on the 1st floor. On the 2nd and 3rd floor, they do not. They have a laundromat pretty close to all of their apartments so that they can go and do their own laundry or they can pay to have their laundry done. Having only dealt with one staff member, I would have to rate that a 4. If the rest of the staff are similar to the staff member I met, or they go above and beyond like she does, I would put them at a 5. They had the most reasonable prices. The facility was excellent for the most part, but there's always somewhere to improve. I saw the dining room, but it was not during a meal.

Parkwood is a GREAT place to live. Everyone on the staff knows my name. That's important because if I don't make it to a meal, someone comes to check on me to see if I'm OK. I heartily recommend Parkwood to any one who is considering a retirement community.

Mom lived at Parkwood for several years and loved it. She had a large two bedroom apartment and it was very roomy. She loved the kitchen and the patio. The outdoor space is wonderful, tons of trees and grass. She was made to feel welcome from the moment she moved to Parkwood. The residents and staff are one big family, everyone is so friendly. We looked at many places in three states and this was the one that felt like "home". We cant' say enough good things about Parkwood, it was a wonderful home for mom.

Provider Response

Your review is so kind and heartfelt. Thank you! We are so pleased to hear that your mother loved Parkwood as her HOME! Thank you for sharing . We appreciate you taking the time to leave us such a positive review.

I visited this facility

I went to Parkwood Retirement Community. There was a little disadvantage there because they were still operating under strict COVID guidelines, so I didn't get to see people, or anything happening, and she said they were starting back mid-March to the use of the dining room, and other stuff. The largest two-bedrooms they have are very, very small. It would not work for us. I loved the staff member. She was wonderful, she was really, really very nice, and I liked the other women that were there. It's just difficult when you don't see anything happening. They have meals, they have exercises, a fitness center, they have a book club, entertainment, socials, and games. It's old, and it's thirty five years old. There's a difference in the feel.

Provider Response

Marilyn, thank you for sharing your experience. We are all working hard to maintain normalcy. We have taken on the challenge and have been creative so we can continue to provide engaging activities to support our residents during this unprecedented time. We treasure the relationships we have built and we are honored to support our residents in so many ways.

I have lived at Parkwood Retirement for almost three years. Coming here was an excellent choice and has more than met my needs for this time of life. Especially going from one stage to another. For example, I recently sold my car, but I have comfort in knowing that Parkwood offers transportation. The people here are all very friendly. Everyone I meet is a new friend. The staff are also especially good at what they do. I always tell other people about Parkwood! Definitely 5 Stars!

We have lived at Parkwood for two years and have been impressed with all aspects of the community and what it offers the residents. The staff is outstanding, particularly in their sincere interest in the welfare and comfort of the residents . They are personable, friendly and available. A variety of activities are provided, but there is no pressure to participate. Our two bedroom apartment is comfortable and quite adequate for senior living. We have washer and dryer connections , but communal laundry facilities are also available. A full kitchen allows us to cook if we desire, but breakfast and lunch is provided. The free TV service is greatly appreciated.

Parkwood Retirement Community was great. Kim did a wonderful job. The apartment was clean and well set up, but it's small for my taste. I like Parkwood and that's my choice, but ultimately it's gonna be my mother's choice, and it's definitely up to her.

I consider myself very lucky to be here at Parkwood because it really feels like home. The staff is so attentive and caring. They work diligently to make sure all of our needs are met. The residents are friendly and welcoming. There are plenty of activities to engage in, and an excellent activity director. The apartment is perfect for me and I enjoy having a balcony, a walk-in shower, and a nice kitchen. The food is very well prepared and seasoned and choices are always offered. Parkwood is also close to assisted living, nursing care and a hospital when the need arises.

We have lived in Parkwood for 5 and 1/2 years and so thankful we found a place that feels like home. The room is just what we needed as we have an extra large bedroom that I can set up my office in it. The house keeping is womderful. They clean every thing including the stove, micro wave and refigerator. The activities director is the best I have ever seen and they have some thing to do at all times even through the viris restictions they always find some activities to keep us busy. It is so nice to have a beauty shop were we don't have to go out for hair, toe nails etc. If we need a Flu shot they bring in a nurse to provide for all of that. I would rate this as one of the best and most reasonable independent living facilities in the area.

My mother has lived at Parkwood for approximately 4 years. Parkwood has been a blessing for my mother as she can still live independently and for the social activities. There are organized games, rides to the grocery store and doctor appointments, field trips, parties, music. (Pre-COVID, social distancing in effect at the time of this review). The apartment is nice, laundry nearby, grounds are well-kept, and the maintenance team responds quickly to even small requests like a light bulb needs changed. The staff are wonderful and go above and beyond and truly care for the residents. The staff reaches out to me if there is any issue or concern with my mother. I highly recommend this facility!

My parents are at Parkwood Retirement Community and it's been great. The director bent over backwards to help us get situated. I couldn't be happier with how much they care about everybody and how helpful they are to the family, and not just the people living there. Everything looks good. It's clean and well taken care of. We've had no issues at all. They have field trips, exercise classes, and trivia classes. There's always something going on. They've been very happy with the food. It feels homey.

Thank you so much for your positive comments about Parkwood Independent Living! We are always more than happy to assist you if anything comes up. Thank you again for letting our team know how we did. Take care!

I visited this facility

We visited Parkwood Retirement, and it was nice. The staff was very nice, followed with us up very well, and brought us a gift around Thanksgiving. Everybody seemed happy. It was cheerful, comfortable, and had a little more space than other facilities. However, it was spread out quite a bit. There were three or four buildings, and there were a lot of ramps going up and down. It would be hard for us to get around.

Provider Response

Beth, we appreciate your kind words about the staff. Our campus design allows for the apartment buildings to be surrounds by beautiful courtyards, mature trees and gazebos for outdoor socialization. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.

I visited this facility

We visited the independent living section of Parkwood Healthcare, although they also have assisted living. Their large 1-bedroom apartment is nice, but the 2-bedroom is small. The place is very well-maintained, and their staff is very excellent, friendly, and personable. They have amenities like a fitness center, they also have shuttles that run every day to grocery stores or to take the seniors on excursions, to see musicals or the theater. They really do a lot of things all the time there. I liked everything about them except for the size of the 2-bedroom apartment. The people that I saw looked very content and happy where they were.
